Have you wanted to start your survival world in the Nether but were unsatisfied with the other data packs out there that generate spawning platforms, send messages in chat, and change other aspects of the game making it feel un-vanilla? Here's the data pack for you! This data pack simply finds a suitable spawn location in the nether based on the location of the world spawn and teleports you there. It also respects any changes to the spawnpoint, so if you use a respawn anchor in the nether or a bed in the overworld, it won't attempt to change your respawn location. It will only spawn you in the nether if there is no spawn location set for the player as if the world spawn was in the nether itself. Enjoy!

Update: I changed the design a bit so that it tries to spawn you in a crimson or warped forest since having your spawn in a soulsand valley, basalt delta, etc. feels unfair. And if you somehow spawn in a terrible location and can't access any starting resources, now you can use /trigger resetSpawn to reroll your spawn. I wouldn't use this unless you are completely stuck, as it is always a fun challenge to spawn in a difficult location. You can also use /trigger lockSpawnReset to disable the feature if you are on a multiplayer server and don't want players resetting the spawn. Let me know if you have any issues!

The nether spawning is a bit wonky.

I would normaly spawn in the overworld at almost 0 72 0 but in the Nether I spawn at -1652 63 426 (same seed).

Maybe you can improve that. Otherwise it is a great datapack.

In the most recent update, I made it select a new spawning position in the nether with the original world spawn as the point of origin in a range of 2000 blocks. This is to ensure that there is no way that the spawning location is in the middle of a lava lake with no suitable location to spawn at, causing the spreadplayers command to fail and you get teleported over the lava lake. I didn't think that spawning coordinates would matter to anyone, so I thought it was better. However, if you want me to give you the version that keeps it at the world spawn, I can do that. It's just that if you generate a world and spawn over a lava lake, you'll have to generate a new world.

That would be great! Would love to test the version where I spawn near world spawn.

I wanted to continue my journey at world spawn to build farms in spawn chunks and so on.

(That's why I ask for a world spawn version).

I just updated the pack to try and respect the spawning coordinates more while also avoiding the teleport over lava issue. See if it works better for you, and let me know!

What happens with a respawn anchor? What does that do?

It will respect any spawns set by the player, including the respawning anchor. Once you die after your respawning anchor is depleted, however, it will spawn you at the world spawn again. From the description above: "It also respects any changes to the spawnpoint, so if you use a respawn anchor in the nether or a bed in the overworld, it won't attempt to change your respawn location."
